If this is still a bit confusing, let’s look at an analogy. Imagine you live in California and have US$10,000 available to spend on a nice vacation. You could holiday within your own state, which would be a lot less hassle and still very enjoyable, but the downside is having to pay high costs for hotel accommodation, a rental car, restaurants, and activities in a relatively expensive part of the world. An alternative would be to book flights to Cambodia, a country in Southeast Asia, and spend your US dollars there where those same purchases are far cheaper, making your budget stretch further. But just like bridging crypto assets, there is a monetary and time cost to flying to another country and it wouldn’t make sense to do so for just a day, plus there may be a more limited selection of purchase options once you arrive at your destination.
